Parks Associates and CONNECTIONS announce events for 2006 International CES

Dallas, Texas August 4, 2005- Thursday August 4, 2005 — Parks Associates and CONNECTIONS announced today they will host a series of special events at 2006 International CES, including a half-day workshop and six interactive sessions. These events will offer expert analysis on a range of topics from changing consumer habits to the global market for digital products and services.

2006 International CES will take place January 5-8, 2006, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Parks Associates’ half-day workshop Portable Players, Bundled Services, & the Global Landscape will take place January 6, 2006, 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. The event will feature Parks Associates’ analysts and the company’s latest industry and consumer research.

According to Parks Associates’ new report Digital Entertainment: Changing Consumer Habits, the hottest products and services — based on both recent purchases and consumer desires — are portable media players, enhanced television services, and mobile phone handsets with advanced features. By the end of 2009, 16 million U.S. households will enjoy “place-shifted” television with multiroom DVR configurations, and cumulative shipments of hard-drive portable multimedia players (PMPs) will be 13 million.

“The home environment is changing dramatically as the digital equation expands into an ever-increasing network of products and services,” said Kurt Scherf, vice president and principal analyst for Parks Associates. “CES offers a broad glimpse of the next year in technology, and our workshop and sessions will enhance the experience through detailed discussion of the trends shaping the near and long-term future in digital living.”
